Our Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern will be eager to see who they are linked with in the summer months. Certainly, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for more young and upcoming talent much like Dele Alli, who was a diamond in the rough hiding in the lower leagues.
Daniel Levy is well known for his shrewd business acumen and with the move to the new stadium, a promotion of youth players over high transfer fees will certainly look better on the books, for the first season anyway.
Our regulars feel that Spurs have a great crop of wonderkids and under the Argentine’s masterful eye, they can only improve ten-fold in the near future.
Indeed, Pochettino should stick to his beliefs of bringing through his youth players our regulars feel, as they have got similar-potential players just waiting for a chance to prove themselves – much like he has done for so many years now.
Our landlord has taken a look at TWO wonderkids that are waiting in the wings of the Lillywhites and should be set free in the new stadium next season…
OUR VERDICT – Kaziah Sterling & Tashan Oakley-Boothe
The 19-year-old striker, Sterling, is just waiting in the shadows at Spurs for his chance to shine. Last season, he’s bagged himself a plethora of goals in his appearances for the Tottenham Hotspur u23’s, alongside many assists, surely proving his class to the Argentine.
With the red-hot form of Harry Kane, Sterling may be waiting a while to be a regular in the first team, if given the chance, Sterling should look to impress and prove to Pochettino that he can be a worthy backup for the time being.
The centre-midfielder Oakley-Boothe is playing way above his age in the u18’s and many in the bar believe it won’t be long before he’s making radical waves throughout Spurs. Having won the U17 World Cup last year with the England side, he made such a huge impact in that competition that it got many in the game talking.
Spurs are seriously lacking in midfield options and a little bit of something different to offer might be the making of Oakley-Boothe.
